Are you having problems opening a C00 file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.
What is a C00 file?
Files that contain the .c00 file extension are created by the WinAce file archiving software. WinAce takes batches of files and compiles them into a single archive file. The archive can then be split into smaller volumes to allow for easier transmission of the file over the Internet and via email.
Each volume of a split file archive is given its own extension in sequence. The .c00 extension is usually given to the first volume of the split file archive.
In order to extract the contents of a split archive file, all of the volumes of the split archive must be present.
